Annual Spring Retreat

The Lucky Charmers once again met at the LOMC in Oregon, Illinois for a few days of fun and quilting. We decided that this is year 7. I missed the first year because I was having back surgery. 

It is so nice to spend quality time with dear friends, many of whom I don't see often. We were missing two of our group this year - both were traveling home from points afar.  

The staff at LOMC fix all of our meals and clean up afterwards. We can sew as much or as little as we want and we enjoy rooms with private bathrooms in a beautiful setting. Saturday was beautiful - a few of us spent a little time outside walking.

As usual there were lots of projects, food, and visiting. I took a few pictures.

Betsy's table runner really looks like spring.

Polly spent some time working on her 365 Challenge blocks. Here are two finishes.

Barb's beautiful quilt:

Krista made the same quilt but in different fabrics.

Polly was working on one of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt patterns - it has lots of pieces.

Betsy was working on this colorful quilt - it just looked like Spring.

Krista made a very cute table runner.

Sandy made this gorgeous flannel quilt.

Saundra was working on this striking Jacob's Ladder quilt.

I worked on blocks for my teal and black quilt until I ran out of small squares.

Then I put together Fish Sticks.

I already had the blocks made so putting together Tamarack went fairly quickly. I think it needs something more so I'll be adding another border.

I also had the HSTs made for Emerald Isle. I decided to try color bands and I'm pleased with the outcome. Now I need to figure out borders...

I also made great progress with my leader/ender projects. We all enjoyed a very productive few days. 


  1. Wow - that looks like such a fun and productive time. That Emerald Isle is beautiful.

  2. It looks like you were all very productive, indeed! Nothing like a little retreat with our stitchy friends.

  3. Looks like a fun weekend. Lots of pretty projects.
